Monterey Jazz Festival and Inns of Monterey Continue Partnership in 2019

Monterey, Calif. July 16, 2019; The Monterey Jazz Festival (MJF) and Inns of Monterey, an official hotel partner of MJF since 2010, are pleased to continue their relationship in 2019 by providing performance opportunities to aspiring local student musicians.

Inns of Monterey, offering a choice of five uniquely designed boutique hotels, including Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa, Monterey Bay Inn, Spindrift Inn, Victorian Inn, and Wave Street Inn, began the official partnership nine years ago to support MJF and its core educational programs in Monterey County to internationally-renowned jazz artists who perform during the annual jazz festival in September; to jazz-teaching artists who mentor and engage thousands of students in Monterey County during the academic year through MJF’s Jazz in the Schools program and during the springtime Next Generation Jazz Festival (NGJF); and to MJF’s faculty and Artists-in-Residence during Summer Jazz Camp by providing accommodations.

"MJF’s programs both educate and inspire young musicians who will shape the future of jazz," explains Randy Venard, VP and General Manager of Inns of Monterey. "Estéban Restaurant is proud to be a platform for this momentum."

“We are so proud of our long association and so grateful for the continued and increasingly generous support from the Inns of Monterey and their VP and General Manager Randy Venard,” said MJF Executive Director, Colleen Bailey. “There is truly no better community partner.”

The summer schedule of student all-star performances at Estéban Restaurant at Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa and other locations in Monterey County can be found on MJF’s website.
